    Sheldon Adelson faces new scrutiny as documents challenge his testimony

    Oooopsies! I wonder if the GOP candidates who just last month were 'auditioning' before Mr Adelson might come to regret their visit to Las Vegas

    Apparently Mr Adelson has some 'friends' in China
    Sheldon Adelson faces new scrutiny as documents challenge his testimony

    Sheldon Adelson, the multibillionaire casino magnate and key Republican party donor, spent four combative days in a Las Vegas court this week defending his gambling empire from accusations of bribery and ties to organised crime.

    By the time the hearing was over, Adelson had argued with the judge, contradicted the evidence of his own executives and frustrated his lawyers by revealing more information than he was required to in response to simple yes or no questions. But most importantly, far from laying the allegations against his Las Vegas Sands conglomerate to rest, the billionaire’s answers threw up yet more questions which he is likely to have to return to court to answer.
    For Jeb Bush fans -- be happy -- he didn't travel to Vegas this year.

    Is Adelson running for office? No, he is simply trying to buy a candidate who will follow orders
